to haunt bart. and everyone who rides it. it was almost a done deal. now at 6:30, the multi- million dollar mistake that has
6:28 pm
come back to haunt us all including bart and everyone who rides on it. it was almost a done deal. bart and its unions agreed on a contract. but it turns out there's a major glitch that was overlooked. our da lin is right outside an emergency bart board of directors meeting tonight that's been going on for hours. >> reporter: yeah, ken. those bart directors are meeting here right now to talk about ways to fix what they are calling the contract glitch. well, here it is. this is part of that tentative agreement. but union officials are saying you can't go back on a signed agreement. it's there is no light at the end of the tunnel for bart workers and management. >> i think it's outrageous. >> i am stunned by this new information. >> reporter: stunned over the contract clause which would give workers six weeks of paid family leave. bart management said it should have never been in the tentative agreement. they just discovered it. >> the board is the final party
6:29 pm
to sign it and we have not signed it so it is not a contract. rob they say six weeks of paid family leave would cause millions. for that reason, bart director gail murray plans to change her original position and vote no on the agreement. >> it's going to be very, very costly to keep this clause in and i don't see how we can. >> it's very disappointing that the district would take this staps when they have a signed agreement. >> reporter: bart workers were frustrated. they say both sides signed it and bart needs to follow it. >> i encourage you to do your duty not only to the riding public but to the members that work here every day and pass the contract. >> reporter: a failed passage could mean another strike. >> i don't want it to go on strike. >> i'm so angry at both sides. >> reporter: a board meeting is scheduled for next thursday so
6:30 pm
those bart directors can vote on that tentative agreement. right now, the passage of that agreement is not looking very strong. live here in oakland, i'm da redskin kpix 5. >> bart officials don't know how that mistake got in the agreement. they say the focus now is on correcting it, not casting blame. 25 million californians and the state's big farmers rely on freshwater from the delta where the water is pumped out of this station feeding into twin canals to meet the southland water demands but the delta has been stretching to the breaking point. kpix 5's linda yee reports, the proposed fix has only fueled the battle over water rights. reporter: the farms have been growing fruit in the delta for 6 generations going back to the gold rush days. they are one of dozens of family-owned farms that harvest grapes, corn, asparagus, or tomatoes on more than 500 acres
6:31 pm
of fertile soil fed by the delta's freshwaters. but the decades long war for water rights between the delta and the central valley farms farther south is coming to a head and doug hemly says it could wipe them out. >> they are taking one of the ranches we farm. >> reporter: their farm is on the path of the state proposed $25 billion project known as the bay delta conservation plan. it will modernize the way water is diverted south to the central valley to irrigate farms there and for drinking water for southern california. two 35-mile-long tunnels each 40 feet in diameter will be built under the river, a more efficient and reliable way to pump freshwater south. one of the planned 60-acre intake plants sits just south of the hemlies' historic farm home and fruit distribution plant. it's a controversial project the state says will also rebuild fish habitats. but opponents here in the delta
6:32 pm
say it's all a cover for a water grab. taking more water from the family farms for the corporate ones. >> it's the mask for destroying the delta as far as i'm concerned. >> reporter: why would they destroy the delta? >> money. it's all about the money. >> reporter: the central valley is california's billion-dollar bread basket. it's where most of the country's produce is grown. >> it's just going to be gone. >> reporter: but this marina owner says the new tunnels will cut off his boat launch and kill recreational fishing and boating in the delta. >> it's just going to drain the sacramento and san joaquin rivers of freshwater. now the saltwater from the ocean in the bay is going to start coming up and intruding into the delta. >> reporter: and that worries the mcclearys. they bought their retirement home in discovery bay so they can sail or water ski. but not in what they believe will be contaminated waters. >> people start seeing the boating mecca that it's always been we'll lose your economic basis. if our backyards get polluted, we are going to lose our home values.
6:33 pm
>> reporter: that's after enduring a decade of construction along the levees. >> 10 years of mud piles and diversion an bad water. >> construction from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. >> reporter: the state tried to calm fears. they promise minimal impact and compensation to farmers and homeowners who lost acreage and they emphasize the project will fix wildlife habitats for migratory birds like the sand hill cranes who roost in the delta islands. hundreds of years of an antiquated water delivery system has destroyed marshland. but delta folks are not buying any of it. >> this isn't about conserving the delta, this is not about water to southern california. >> what the plan needs to do. >> reporter: the project manager. not everybody is going to be happy with the final plan. is that safe to say? >> i think that's safe to say. >> it's a water grab. whoever puts their straw in the farthest upstream gets the
6:34 pm
water. >> reporter: delta folks can say the real intention of the new tunnels is to eventually send more water to agribusiness in the central valley and a private water bank where they store excess water to sell later. more on that tonight at 11 p.m. linda yee, kpix 5. they usedded to set you apart in the job market but quickly becoming a necessity. coming up in consumerwatch, how to use personal websites to get a job and the quick and easy way to create one for free.

one. gotham city 54 degrees right now. san jose 56. you're coming in at 55 in santa rosa. oakland at 65. and livermore 57 degrees. so we are rapidly cooling down. now, the one thing that's been the constant has been the lack of rainfall. but temperatures haven't. we really warmed up in the middle of the week. san jose got to 74. then you came crashing down yesterday and stayed chilly today. 10-degree drop this week. now that we're chilly we're going to stay chilly. i don't see one day that i would characterize as warm coming up over the next several. as a matter of fact, it's going to be cold tonight. the opposite. santa rosa down to 39. napa 39. concord dropping down to 44. fairfield, vacaville, 43. san rafael 44 degrees. so two things. two different fronts to talk about. now, we're going to get glancing blows with both because we have the ridge of high pressure that's been with us for a while taking the meat out of the fronts. but the first one will give us cloud cover. rain stays to our north but notice the cloud cover spilling over northern california northwestern nevada heading towards us. you may have seen it before sunset. we will have a blanket of cloud
6:47 pm
cover over top of us and you will start off saturday cloudy. sunshine in the afternoon. high pressure keeps the rain to the north and cold air will envelope about 90% of the lower 48 but not us. we'll be chilly but not cold. now we are looking at next week where our high pressure dome moves us farther away opening up the door for another front to move in. and this one will clip us with some rainfall. the rain will make it down to the bay area especially in the north bay because you're closer to the actual low. but as that high pressure area moves south, we actually have a rain chance to talk about coming up next wednesday. so still several days away but at least we have one rain chance out there. staying cool for a while. temperatures are down, they're staying down. the rain though this weekend will miss us to the north. that rain chance for us will be next wednesday. saturday, sunny in the afternoon, cloudy start, temperatures pretty close to average. san jose 63. sunnyvale 62. union city hayward fremont 61. pacifica coming in at 60 tomorrow. 62 pleasant hill. pleasanton 63. pittsburg 61. this time of year we don't get
6:48 pm
a big temperature spread. we won't have one tomorrow. richmond 61. rohnert park 61. sonoma 63. toward clearlake highs around 60 in st. helena 63 degrees. so sunny sunday, mid-60s. monday sunny mid-60s. cloudier tuesday. here comes the rain chance not amounting to much but we need to start somewhere and that somewhere may be next wednesday. we clear out next thursday and friday. that is your kpix 5 forecast. sports is next. ,,
